This one passed by at the beach. I have seen it in the local airshow before.
It's a Nanchang CJ-6A.

Free at Last!

After eight years we are finally free of incompetence, free of fascism. Let's restore civil liberties. Let's restore Habeas Corpus. Let's restore the Constitution!

I wish Obama well. He'll need all our help.

In the words of Martin Luther King: "Free at Last! Free at Last!"
He would have been proud today!

An old photo (no pun intended), from 2004 at the Ft. Pierce airshow, with some special processing. Does it work?

ISEXP : error -6264: A record in the Property table is using string ID 'ID_STRING1' for column 'Value' but this string is blank...

I have not used InstallShield Express in a long while. I was asked to prepare a utility at work to send to one of our clients. This was done in VFP (just one stand-alone screen with a few procedures).

I fired-up IS-Express, which I had not used in over a year as I've been doing mostly ASP.NET work, and the Build process came up with this error.

I filled all the empty lines I could find but could not find STRING1.

A Google search for the error pointed to a blog entry by Juan Calcagno, a fellow VFP developer. I did the Export to TXT function as he explained and followed the first commentator's post.

Then got another error:
"Internal Error 2855, SetupType, RadioGroup"

This one I solved from another google search to the InstallSite Forum.

Problem solved.

Sad news

I just learned from Andy Kramek that Ceil Silver lost her fight with cancer and passed away day before yesterday.

Ceil was a gifted developer, writer and magazine editor. She will be missed by the FoxPro community and by all that knew her.

One year in 40 seconds

This guy took a picture every few days for all of 2008, then joined it in a HD Vimeo video. The sounds are recorded on location too. Very neat to see the seasons change.

Link to the HD video

Here's the explanation of how it was done.
